Step by Step provides an evidence based treatment program for youth with Autism. Our Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) programming can be accessed by families a couple different ways. We have been able to partner with several school districts to provide services at one of our two locations, but in some situations we provide our program inside the school itself. We support kids as young as 3 years of age, and up to 18 years old.
Our program curriculum includes communication and social skills instruction imbedded directly into the student’s day, incorporating instruction that is designed to improve both pre-academic and academic skills. Specific social skills deficits are identified through assessment and are taught using a combination of social stories, modeling and role play.
EXTENDED SCHOOL YEAR
Many of the youth and families we serve and support require an “Extended School Year”. Using and expanding on our Center Based Programming, Step by Step offers an extended school year program. Sometime around the first of the year, Step by Step staff will start working with families and guardians to discuss treatment needs after the regular school year ends. Social Workers in our Center Based Programs will help connect families and guardians to funding options that will support this level of programming.
SUMMER DAY CAMPS
Step by Step offers a weekly themed summer day camp that is open to children in our community with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities. We have developed fun programming for our campers and always assure that supports are available soeach child will have a wonderful and memorable experience.
